This cutie has a board for a bottom - so he can sit on a shelf (or bookcase) and dangle his feet over the edge. Behind him I have a display of children's Christmas stories. I guess I'm starting a collection of "The Night Before Christmas" - I have two and just ordered the version that is illustrated by Tasha Tudor. I love the illustrations in childrens' books - whether they're childlike and fun or beautiful art.
The cups and plate are sitting on top of my old wooden ice box in the dining room. This was an estate sale find almost 30 years ago. If we had a fire, I'd probably try and get it out the door!!
